Meet TWIX! If you’re looking for a bouncy pooch to make sure you get those steps look no further. Just like most puppies he’s affectionate, curious and rambunctious. He’s definitely not a couch potato and does best with 3 walks per day plus some playtime. He loves running around the park playing catch and playing with his toys at home. It’s important that he keeps active and mentally engaged otherwise he will look for his own entertainment in the home and that may or may not include chewing your clothes. Because he’s still learning what’s appropriate to chew, he should be crated when he’s left alone. He does whine a bit when he first goes in the crate but does settle. He’s currently used to a more flexible schedule where he doesn’t need to spend too much time in the crate but on the days where he has spent longer periods in there he’s been ok. At night he heads in there himself! If his new people work longer hours he would do best with a dog walker or the opportunity to hang out with some pals at doggy daycare. He LOVES socializing with other pooches and has good exposure with a variety of dogs. One of his best pals is a younger dog who loves running around with him and the other is an older dog who shows him the ways the world, like how to pick out the best stick to chew at the park. TWIX has been responding well to training so far and is pretty good about walking on a short leash beside you. He can be a bit vocal at times and may bark at you if he wants something including a walk, your attention or your food, but he’s learning that this can be a little demanding and there are better ways to get what you want. He has not been exposed to cats but hasn’t shown strong signs of a prey drive. He hasn’t met kids yet either but would probably be fine with older kids, keeping in mind that he may jump up if he gets too excited. If you’d like to meet TWIX fill out an application to adopt today!
